Promising CB visiting

The Big 12 Conference has become the best passing league in the country, and that has created a greater need for talented cover men than in the past. A player with solid skills in that area is slated to check out Boulder and coach Dan Hawkins' program this weekend. Get inside to read more.

Desmond Trufant, a product of Wilson High School in Tacoma, Wash., has been talking for months about the possibility of visiting Colorado at some point this year, and he's finally making the trip.

The three-star cornerback/running back and possible kick return man will be checking out the Buffs this weekend.

"I'm just looking for a good team -- the players and how they are, how the coaches are," Trufant recently told' Barry Bolton when discussing what he is looking for in all the school's recruiting him. "And how everything in the program is run.

"Am I going to be able to come in and have an impact early, or am I going to have to redshirt? I want to come in and try to play. (I'm looking) for where I have the best chance to play."

Trufant's only other official visit so far was to Arizona State earlier this fall. He said he enjoyed his time there and lists the Sun Devils among his favorites. CU and Washington State are the other two programs he is hearing from most.

Trufant has ties to Washington State. He is the younger brother of former WSU great Marcus Trufant, who is now a cornerback for the Seattle Seahawks. Another brother, Isaiah Trufant, played cornerback at Eastern Washington.

Trufant has not named a favorite and has no timetable for announcing his choice.
